hey guys. I'm contemplating if this is worth fixing. The check engine light came on the other day. I took it to the local Chevy dealer by the house. They said the codes came up for a dirty throttle body (easy fix) and timing chain. I couldn't believe it would be the timing chain. Its an 04 3.5 4x4 with only 107 thousand miles. I went to a second Chevy Dealer to get a second opinion. they told me the same thing. they want 2100 to fix. The truck still drives fine. when I start it, it gives a little whine at first, then goes away. The weather also has been in the single digits lately. When the motor would warm up, the oil light would keep turning on and off (Oil Level is fine). Would it be worth putting money into it and fixing the timing chain? Or would I expect to have more problems after?

Advice/Opinions please!
